ABSTRACT
The bailed-out mortgage giants will eliminate employee pension plans by the end of the year, at the urging of their regulator, to limit long-term liabilities and help conserve assets. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had frozen pension contributions earlier this year. Employees participating in the pension plan will get a lump-sum payout or an annuity. The pension elimination comes as the federally backed entities return to profitability, but they continue to pay the Treasury as a result of the bailout.
